***  One Paragraph Pitch:

Say it with power & precision: writing/messaging/marcom services

Words are crucial. They’re your identity. They convey what your business or organization is about. I can help. Content marketing, ghostwritten pieces for busy executives, Web content, op-eds, case studies, newsletters, speeches, messaging/talking points, branding, you name it. I can do wonky and technical content, marketing copy that zings, and everything in between. Massaging pre-written material to make it smooth as well as plain-old copyediting are specialties as well. I’ve worked with leading trade associations and ghostwritten for executives of large corporations.  A quick study, I’m perfect to fill the content void between staff departures and new hires. I’m also considering internal-position opportunities.
